Bishop de Pencier is to hold a service here this evening & I hope I shall be able to get away long enough to hear him but it is hard to leave my stool for the Asst Adjt is always in demand.
However now we are out of the trenches I can get to bed by 11 & don't have to be on duty before 9 am.
Things do not look well in the East at all but we are doing all right out here & keeping the initiative. German docts captured from time are most interesting & some are almost incredible. Unfortunately I can only whet your curiosity, not satisfy it - I have such a nice letter from Meg Walney. I shall certainly look her up in London. She is again sending me a parcel. Love to all & best Christmas & New Years wishes to all in the office.
